Peacock eel get pretty big 1 foot but are peaceful and shy-like sand and lots of hiding places, don't get a common pleco-find a bushy nose type that stays small and make sure you have wood for it to rasp on for its digestion, 8-10 cory cats-you have a lot on the bottom.......

Ok so the eel will work with a betta though? because since their a carnivore and how big they get i was kinda afraid that it would eat my betta....theres a kinda of pleco that i saw at a pet store i think it was called a clown pleco would that be fine? Also is there one cory thats better than others? Because i personally like the emeralds..Thank your for all your help i really appreciate it..

I was at my LFS yesterday and they had a large school of glass catfish with a betta also in the tank. Looked super awesome.

Glass catfish are also sensitive to water conditions and pH. They also catch ich very easily.
